I often meet moms at a park or library who watch me play with my boys and say, "I wish I knew how to roughhouse like that, but as a girl my father never did that with me."
I recently wrote about our family's many types of roughhousing.
As another resource, the family who designed the curriculum used by the dojo at which Smiley takes classes has created a set of excellent videos about the foundations of their kids' curriculum. The set of Gracie Games videos only costs $30 and could teach any parent to be among the best roughhouse-ers! That would be a much more fun holiday present than a toy for a kid who yearns to wrestle with a parent.
